After considering responses to consultation issued on 31 March last year, the government has decided that police authorities will be subject to the same compulsory competitive tendering regime for information technology/information systems as other authorities defined under the Local Government Act 1988, except for a number of specific exemptions, home office minister David Maclean announced to the Commons (WA 29 March col 791).

As well as specific exemptions there will also be a reduction in the overall competition requirement. The adjustments take account of the specialist nature of police work, the minister said, and focus on the need to protect operational effectiveness and force security.
